Gratitude Journal #194, Edited

Today, I am grateful for living in America, founded on the idea of freedom. I am grateful for the men who drafted and signed the document that started it all. I am grateful for the courage, sacrifice, and wisdom that brought us to where we are today.


Today, I am grateful for coffee on Friday with my friend Barbara. Just being with her cheers me up and blesses me!

Today, I am grateful for a trip to the movies with my firstborn. We saw Man of Steel, which was pretty good! I am also grateful that George and Jack had fun at the pool, eating ice cream, and walking Daisy while Nick and I were at the cinema.

Today, I am grateful for great food and domestic bliss with my honey.

Today, I am grateful for libraries and librarians.


What are you grateful for today?

Edited to add: I just read about the 19 firefighters who lost their lives in Arizona. My heart hurts for their families and friends. I am so very grateful for their dedication and sacrifice, for their families who supported them, and for all who reach out with comfort and care for the grieving at this time and in the months and years to come.
